Nuclear engineering

Faculty: Matthew J Memmott

Dr. Memmott's research focuses on enhancing the passive safety of both current and advanced nuclear reactor technology while improving the economics, fuel utilization, and grid adaptability of current plants. Several new system or component concepts are being developed, and each innovation is then evaluated in safety space to ensure that no inadvertent detrimental influences on overall nuclear safety will be introduced into the reactor system by the implementation of the new technology.
